To be sure, Virginia’s victory in Chapel Hill last Saturday night was a critical one; the Hoos remained on the inside track towards a divisional championship with the win. Still, assuming they take care of the Yellow Jackets on Saturday, the Cavaliers could use a little help from around the conference if they want to secure a trip to Charlotte prior to their regular season finale.
Virginia has been anything but consistent during ACC play. They’ll look to buck that trend this weekend by handling a Georgia Tech team that continues to deal with the struggles of transitioning away from the triple-option under new head coach Geoff Collins.

After a shaky start to 2019 that included losses to Boston College and Duke by 35, Justin Fuente, whose tenure in Blacksburg was growing less certain by the day at one point, seems to have righted Virginia Tech’s ship. Despite last week’s heartbreaker at Notre Dame, the Hokies, like UVA, remain in control of their own destiny for the Coastal title. That could change this weekend, however, if Wake Forest, the ACC’s second-most steady team, gets the best of them this weekend.

Though they’d still need a lot of things to go their way, a loss to Louisville (and a UVA win) on Saturday would officially knock Miami out of the running for the division. On the other side, the Cardinals look to keep building on their resurgent season with a fourth ACC victory.
